ERBIL, Aug. 5 (AKnews) - Turkish newspaper Sabah stated that Foreign Minister Ahmet Davutoglu who visited Erbil and Kirkuk last week during which he met with Syrian opposition for the regime of Bashar al-Assad said that his country does not stand against Kurds but does stand against terrorism.
According to the newspaper Davutoglu stressed the need for the Syrian National Council and the Kurdish National Council to unify their efforts against Assad who deprived them of their rights.
The newspaper reported Davutoglu as saying that his country stands against the entity led by the Democratic Union Party, which is an extension for the outlawed Kurdistan Workers’ Party in Turkey.
The newspaper said the chairman of the National Kurdish Syrian Council Bashar al-Hakim assured the Turkish foreign minister that they do not want to face Turkey and they will not allow the control of the Democratic Union Party.
Davutoglu arrived at the head of high-level delegation to Erbil, where he met the Kurdistan Region’s President Massoud Barzani before heading to Kirkuk last Thursday.
